Wo have Portland papers to the 22d inst. 
No news of importance. 

The Advertiser says that E. H. Pay and 
R. McLaughlin have just returned from 
British Columbia. They were of the party 
that went out with Robinson about year 
ago. McLftuglin intends to soon go up and 
make further prospects on the Wonacha 
river, believing that good diggings exist 
there judging from the observations made 
when he passed through that region last 
year. 

Parties arc doing quite a business in 
bringing Chinook salmon up to the Portland 
market. 

The Dalles- Journal suggests that a party 
be organized to follow the Utah Road F,x- 
potion, for the purpose of prospecting under 
its protection, the region drained by the 
Malheur, concerning which there are many 
well authenticated traditions handed down 
from the early emigrants to Oregon. 

The Oregon papers are absorbed in poli- 
tics. 

The cheapness of passage on the San 
Francisco steamers, it is thought will en- 
courage immigration to Oregon. 

The Columbia river is now navigated 200 
miles above Dos Chutes, and Snake river t" 
Fort Taylor, sixty miles from its junction 
with the Columbia. 

There are two daily papers now publish- 
ed in Portland. 

From Eastern Asia. — The Shanghao 
Herald says there are rumors afloat of some 
difficulties at Peking between the Chinese 
and Russian authorities; coming through 
natives the truth is not likely to be arrived 
at. Thoy are to tho effect that the Russians 
have established their legation in the capi- 
tal, and that their minister, who is atten- 
ded by a large retinue, rofuses to commu- 
nicate officially with any one but the Errt- 
poror himself. Great offonco, it is also said, 
is given by his assumption of eight bearers 
to his sedan, the number which the Emperor 
alone is privileged to have. There are also 
reports that a large number of Chinese 
troops are occupying Tion-tsin, and the peo- 
ple are apprehensive of trouble when the 
British Ambassador proceeds to Poking, to 
inaugurate his establishment there. 



Testimony of Mr. Jamos Cooper boforo a Poru- 
mitto of tho House of Commons, May 21r,t, 
1857, on tho Hudson's Bay Company, and 
tho government alfairs of Vancouver Island, 
— Continued. 

Markets. 

Mr. Grogan, — What quantity of your 
own land have you under tillage? — About 
00 acres, 

Have yon a ready disposal id' the pro- 
duce of that? — No ; it entirely depends on 
the will of the Hudson's Bay Company 
what they will give a bushel for wheat or 
produce ; they may either give us one shil- 
ling or they may give us two dollars a 
bushel, as they please. 

Or they may refuse to take it at all ?— ■ 
They may refuse to take it all. 

Has that'faot ovor occurred? — It hits. 

In that ease what became of tho produce 
so raised; wheat, for instance? — A great | 
deal of it is in the stacks to this day, thoro 
being no market for it. 

Is the fact of there being no market for 
it, and your being entirely dependent on 
the Hudson's Bay Company for the pur- 
chase of the wheat, a drawback to prevent 
the colonists from raising any greater 
quantity of it?— I am certain of it. if wo 
had a market for it, three times the quan- 
tity, under the present means, could be 
raised. 

Then, in fact, the Hudson's Bay Com- 
pany could draw any quantity of supplies 
they pleased from the island ? — Not any 
quantity, but they could draw a greator 
quantity than is already produced. 

If that import duty of 20 per cent, to 
which you alluded as paid on goods going 
into San Francisco, were abolished, do you 
think that the cultivation of wheat and 
other agricultural products would greatly 
increase ? — It would certainly. 

You have no doubt of that? — 1 have no 
doubt of it. 

Fisheries. 

You mentioned something about fishing; 
will you give a little information on the 
subject ? — There is no fishing of importance 
on Vancouver's Island, only on the rivers 
and coast of the mainland : and there the 
Hudson's Bay Company hold the exclusive 
right of trade, according to their charter, 
of the mainland. 

En the Fuca Strait what the case? — 
It is nil open there. 

Any ono may fish chore? — Yes : but in 
Fraser'a River, which is the only inlet iuto 
♦ ho mainland, in fact, no one is allow 

ash; 

Is that where the salmon is princi_ 
taken?— It i-. 

Chairman. — Tiro is a very valuable 
fishery, is it not ? — It is. 

Mr. Grogan. — If any quantity of lis'u 
were taken by any of the emigrant- who 
clmse to devote their attention to it, what 
would become of it ; have they the means 
of exporting and selling it?— Not very am- 
ple means. 

Have they mentis at all?— No; they 
would have probably to charter an Ameri- 
can vessel to take it to some port south, or 
to the Sandwich Islands. 

Have the Company any vessels that 
trade in fish themselves? — Yea ; but they 
very often refuse to take freight. 

Do you say that from your own know- 
ledge? — Y's, I do; 1 Bay it as a fuel : no 
It-right was to bo brought up for sottlcrs 
from the Sandwich Islands. 

Chairman. — Do you mean thai they re- 
fuse to take freight upon system, or thai 
they refuse to take freight either because 
the'ro is not room for it, or because it would 
be inconvenient for them to go to the par- 
ticular place whero the froight is? — I be- 
lieve it is inconvenicni to them j they do 
not care about il : you musl do it for your- 
selves if you wish il dono, and not trouble 
them about it: if they do it. it is a vory 
great favor for you. 

Mr, (Irogan. — Are there any regular 
traders belonging to the Company which 
go to tho island ? — Ona only. 

One in Ihe year? — She goes several times 
in the year ; but only one vessel, 

Viscount Oodorich.- Whore does she go 
i.. ,' To the Sandwich I- lands.

VICTORIA. V. t. 



MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 2». 



ECONOMY.— UNPAID MAGISTRATES.— VIC 
TOEIA INCORPORATED. 

Economy as well as offioioncy ought to 
bo studied in relation to every department 
of our government. Wo have before alluded 
to tho necessity for uniting the oliice.s of 
Colonial Secretary and Registrar of Deods, 
when the latter is instituted, on the ground 
of economy, as well as being in harmony 
with the experience of other provinces. Wo 
would now direct attention to the obvious 
necessity of making a saving in relation to 
to our police deportment. The present in- 
cumbent draws from the treasury a salary 
of £375 as magistrate, £200 as commis- 
sioner of police, and X100 for lodging 
money, in all equivalent to nearly $2000. 
This sum though inconsiderable in a larger 
community than ours, is a far heavier tax 
tli an wo can afford to hear. And when it 
is possible to administer justice with equal 
certainty and promptitude by means of 
unpaid magistrates, it is obviously our 
duty to adopt tho latter. In addition to 
53000 to the present magisterial incumbent, 
wo pay to the Clerk { the Police Court £375 
n year. In England where an unpaid mag- 
istracy is adopted, it is usual to have a 
clerk capable of giving legal advice to the 
presiding magistrate. In the eastern prov- 
inces, unpaid magistrates serve the country 
well and satisfactorily, though no clerk is 
allowed them. Here then wo can sec no 
good reason why we should not set aside sti- 
pendiary magistrates in toto, — and for the 
purposes of Vcitorin only retain an efficient 
police court clerk. I>y so doing a saving of 
S.'IOOO would become an important item in 
creating an efficient lire department, which 
is much wanted, — or improving our streets. 
"\Vo want improvements for these and kin- 
dred purposes, purely civic, and except we 
economise tho public expenditure, we will 
luck their use or involve ourselves largely 
in debt, 

In order to secure an efficient unpaid 
magistracy for Victoria, we know of no 
better plan than to obtain from the legisla- 
ture a limited act of incorporation, — em- 
powering the governor to order an election 
of live gentlemen for a year, to discharge 
the duties of magistrates, within certain I 
limits. And the act should authorise the I 
live to act as a board of aldermen, withal 
general supervision of matters purely local, 
including power to tax the town for the 
support of tho police, — to regulate and im- 
prove the streets, — establish a lire depart- 
ment, — licence theatrical i lpanios, — 

impose a license on liquor dealers fa- town 
purposes, — make regulations to prevent 
fires, — and n number of other minor pro- 
visions. By this means, wo believe, our 
affairs would be managed bettor and 
cheaper than they arc now : and the legis- 
lature! would not he called upon to legislate 
on trilling matters that could be bettor done 
by a civic ordinance, than through tho 
cumbrous machinery of tho legislature of 
the colony. 

8©*" An expedition leaves for Queen 
Charlotte's, Island to-day or to-morrow, 
comprising eleven men, under Captain 
Torrens. They shirt in canoes, and go 
well armed, and supplied with mining im- 
plements, and provisions for four months. 
The enterprising spirit of these pioneers 
deserves commendation, and we hope they 
will reap a rich reward,— -return safely,— 
and be ranked among the benefactors of 
Hid country. 



BRITI3H COLUMBIA NEWS. 

Tho steamer Gov. Douglas, dipt. Murray, 
arrived on Friday evening from various 
ports on Eraser river, bringing down 130 
passengers, among whom wero his Excel- 
lency Gov. Douglas and stall'. Gold dust to 
the amount of §28,000 is reported. 

Yale. — The body of a man was found in 
the water opposite Yale, on the evening of 
Thursday the 2.">d hist. It was brought! 
ashore by some Indians, and an inquest 
held by Commissioner Sanders. Verdict, 
accidental drowning. The name of the 
deceased was supposed to be John McAuly, 
of Lytton City, an Irishman, and appeared 
to have been i;i the witter two weeks, lie 
was buried by the authorities. 

River Falling: — Eraser river has fallen 
about 1.2 feet within ten days, and still con- 
tinues to recede, consequently many of tho 
miners in the kiuiyons have gone to work 
again. 

Sale or Lots. — Tho government lot sale 
at Yale, on the 15th resulted in the dispo- 
sal ot only twelve lots at prices ranging 
from $100 to 8500. 

Eoirr Hon:. — The Douglas on tho up trip 
carried up seven Sappers for the Fort Hope 
trail. Considerable complaint has been 
made because further assistance has not 
been rendered by tho government. 

New Diggings. — Reports were current 
at Port Douglas and Yale that new and 
rich diggings had been struck near Fort 
Alexander, and some parties had left for 
them. 

Pout Douglas.— Tho Douglas carried up 
150 Sappers for tho wagon trail. Traders 
from there have full confidence. McDon- 
ald's mill is cutting a good deal of lumber. 
Not much bidding going on. 

Qoeenborouou. — The Gov. Douglas was 
seized by the Government for the head 
tax which Capt. Murray refused to pay on 
his last voyage down. A difficulty occurred 
between him ami the seizing; officer, which 
ended in ordering out the soldiers. He of- 
fered to pay the money under protest, this 
not being satisfactory, he was going to land 
the soldiers on board for Pt. Douglas, when 
the money was taken under protest. On 
his return he was bound over to appear on 
Tuesday at Quccnborough to answer the 
charge of resisting an officer. The matter 
however, will he settled amicably. 

Great excitement prevailed in relation to 
the head tax among the people A protest 
was signed declaring it impolitic, and ille- 
gal. The latter is a mistake. 

LICENSE. 

Editor Colonist : — Am the period for the 
payment of the yearly licenses is now ap- 
proaching, would yi at ho kind enough to 
insert the following brief remarks : 

How many holders of liquors arc selling 
under one license '>. 

How many areonly paying a beer license, 
and selling lhpiors on the sly ? 

It comes heavy on those wdio have paid 
the full license <if .CI '20 in advance. 
Yours, respectfully, 

Mercatob, Junior. 

Ball.— Tho "First Hebrew Victoria 
Benevolent Society's" Ball, in oidof their 
funds, camo off on Thursday evening, at 
the Assembly Hall, Broad Street. The 
handsome sum id' S15S was realized after 
defraying all expenses. The hall was 
tastefully decorated with (lags and ever- 
greens, — and was well filled with ladies and 
gentlemen but not crowded. The band of| 
II. M. -hip Tribune, discoursed gentle | 
music, to the strains of which all tripped 
gaily on the " light fantastic toe," till 
"daylight did appear," when the company 
separated highly pleased with the enter- 
tainment. 

Accommodating. — J. Xagle, Esq., Har- 
bor Master, has placed us under obligations 
tor Custom House facilities. 



Sandwich Island Trade. — This trade 
bids fair to become of considerable im- 
portance and advantage to us. The Hud- 
son's Day Company have carried on a littl" 
trado with the islands for somo years, 
shipping fish thoro and bringing in return 
sugar and island produce. Tho clipper 
Elissa and Ella, to J!. 0. Janion, with 100 
head of beef cattle, and -100 head of sheep, 
both in line condition, besides n large lot 
of sugar, is the second ship which that en- 
terprising house has loaded at Honolulu, 
for this port, within a short period. We 
regret that we do not produce enough 
fish and lumber to load her in return, in 
order to keep our circulating medium in 
tho country,— and would prefer to see is- 
land produce instead of cattle coming to 
our market. But till such time as we settle 
up the interior with farmers, we will be 
compollod to draw our supplies of cattle 
anil sheep from abroad, either Washington 
territory or the Sandwich Islands, — and till 
then perhaps we will have to wait for the 
balance of trade to turn in our favor. 



Licenses. — British Columbia is complain- 
ing loudly about the $600 license for a year 
in advanco, instead of quarterly. The same 
thing is true here. We hope the govern- 
ment of both colonics, will take tho matter 
up in good earnest, and meet tho views of 
the people. There cannot be any loss in 
revenue. — but in our opinion, a great gain, 
by quarterly licenses.

VICTORIA POLICE COURT. 

BEFORE JUSTICE rE.MREB.TON. 

Saturday, June 25th. 

'Skvlarkinq :— Julm McCrea alias Jack, 
'^ ith ono Archy McQrogor, and ono or. two 
snore oovies, in their passage to tho raneh- 
■•aria, thought they would " sky-lark" 'a 
little, and hurst in tho door of a French 
lady. They were met, however, by an 
O'lleily, who hail two of them taken in 
charge — one with dagger in hand, the othor 
with a five-shooter full-cocked. His Honor 
sent up the ease to the Quarter Sessions for 
• ajury to decide. 

Dan'oer or Lenuino. — Thomas Cameron 
•made complaint against a man named Kid- 
man, for inking an axe which he had lent 
to a restaurant-keeper, in Cameron's house, 
who has since left. The evidence went to 
prove, that the accused took the law into 
his own hands, rather furiously, and al- 
though ho received his hatchet hack, had 
to pay the costs of court $3.50! The ac- 
cused stated that he would appeal to a 
higher court, which .made the lawyers 
prick up their ears. 

LODQINTlS: — Three gentlemen who could 
not find their homes, were aided by our 
care-takers to respectable lodgings in the 
police barracks. 

Eliza and Ella •. — The mate of this 
ship appeared in court, with a man in 
irons, against whom he made a complaint 
that lie had been drunk and disorderly on 
board. The Steward proved that he had 
threatened his life on more than one oc- 
casion, and run after him with a knife, to 
execute his threat. I Lis evidence was cor- 
roborated although it was proved that the 
accused was drunk on the occasion of the 
second assault. Sentence, S15, or 14 days, 
■with hard labor. 

List of Vessels in - the Port ok Victoria 
'25th June, LSo'.). — L'ritish steamers Otter, 
Governor Douglas, Caledonia, Col. Moody j 
American steamer Eliza Anderson ; Brit- 
ish ships Thames City, Carnatic ; British 
bark Euphrates : American ship Eliza & 
Ella; American bark Carrie Lcland; Amer- 
ican brig Kate Poster ; Hamburg bark 
Caisar. 

At EsquimaU.— II. M. Ships Tribune, 
Satellite, Pylades, Plumper. 

J. NAGLE, Harbor Master. 

Fire '. — Last evening the roof of Rudolf's 
Oyster Saloon, Waddington street, was dis- 
covered in a blaze. Fortunately the rain 
prevented the shingles burning. Had it 
occurred a day or so ago when the roofs 
were dry and the wind blew furiously, no 
one could guess at the result. It origina- 
ted from carelessly putting up tho stove- 
pipe. When are we to have an efficient 
fire department ? This is a warning. 

, Bark Ecru rates. — The Bark Euphrates, 
Scorgis, master, arrived at Esquimalt, on 
Saturday, from London, — which port she 
left on January 7th, making the voyage in 
10!) days. Lost a man overboard, named 
Edward Bllingtiehl, of Yarmouth, England. 
t IEen-coops were thrown overboard but they 
were unable to save him. Passengers, 5 
Suppers and Miners, 2 women, and 10 
children, one born on the passage. A largo 
part of her cargo is in government stores. 

She was towed into our harbour yester- 
day, by the Eliza Anderson, and now lies 
at Myer's wharf. 

His Excellency in Danger. — We learn 
that one of the fiercest of the cattle landed 
from fhe Eliza aud Ella, plunged into the 
water and swam across .lames' Bay and 
made straight for his Excellency, who was 
watching the boat sent in pursuit, lie 
caught the eye of the infuriated brute and 
hold him at bay with his cane, till the 'lasso' 
relieved him from his dangerous situation; 

Escapes. — Several escapes from being in- 
jured were current talk during the landing 
of the Sandwich Island cattle. . 

05y-Thc Eliza Anderson brought over 
the express ' by the Panama, from Port 
Townsend, on Friday evening. 



Cast Iron - Front. — Mr. James Wilcox, 
proprietor of tho Royal Hotel, has the 
honor of being the first person to put in 
an iron front in a store, in Victoria. This, 
with the spacious lire-proof warehouse of 
Mr. Kaindler, which is also to have torn 
doors, and with the fine two-story brick 
of Messrs Ilibhon &Co., indicate full confi- 
dence in the country, — notwithstanding 
the predictions of the S. F. Herald, or the 
unreliable report in the Alfa regarding our 
merchants. 

Victoria Harbor. — Cue fact is worth a 
thousand theories ; anil the arrival of that 
fine ship Eliza and Ella alongside of lteid 
& MeDonuld's wharf, is the best evidence 
of tho capaoity of Victoria Harbour, and 
slightly damages the Admiralty survey. 
This ship is ISO feet long, and draws lo 
feet water, is 800 tons register, carrying, 
dead weight and measurement, 1,200 tons, 
and sailed into her dock. The ship Car- 
natic, 800 tons register, drew 10 feet when 
sho came in. 

Queeniiorouoii Streets. — Those owning 
lots at Queonborough design making rep- 
resentations to the government that if the I 
streets are not graded at once, in accord- 
ance with the conditions expressed at the 
sale, that they will refuse to pay tho instal- 
ment duo on July 1st. 

US?" One shoulder-striker threatened in 
the presence of His Excellency to throw 
him overboard from the wharf at Queon- 
borough. Bread and water would be 
a p:opcr prescription tor this follow j his 
threat richly merited that reward, with the 
the addition of cracking stones. 

Cray" Tho obnoxious head tax it is said 
will be repealed. Material discrepancies 
in the statements, in relation to its nature, 
ami object, have been made by His Excel- 
1 eney. 

{pay- Since the arrival of the Douglas, a 
better feeling in relation to business pre- 
vails, — and wo believe that business will 
steadily improve, and towards fall will be 
brisk. 



R&" Three canoes of Northern Indians 
arrived here yesterday. There has been a 
light between some Hyders and Covvitchcns 
up the coast.
